Vegetarian Meat

may be right around the corner. From Marginal Revolution:

I predict that the animal welfare movement will expand dramatically in the next several decades as in-vitro meat becomes widely available. In-vitro meat is "made in the laboratory" meat - it's real meat but grown in "vats" rather than on animals. In-vitro meat has already been grown in thin slices, thick steaks are harder because fresh meat must be fed nutrients by a blood supply and that requires an incredibly complicated network of capillaries and veins. But really, who is going to notice the difference in a McDonald's patty? I bet thin meat tastes a lot better than tofu.

I can't wait to have a steak tree growing in the back yard.
